Domestic abuse is a seemingly daily occurrence in Gallatin County. Calls to Bozeman police and Gallatin County deputies paint the picture:
• At noon Saturday a son called police after he and his mother were punched by the son’s stepfather.
• Later that day, an argument forced a woman to leave her 2-year-old with her boyfriend, who had possibly been using meth.
• At 8 p.m., deputies responded to a 911 hang-up call after hearing a man screaming obscenities in the background. Upon arrival, deputies were met by a man with a firearm. The man was arrested for domestic assault.
